Dress Your Personality – Party Animal

creature of the night, high on energy, super socializer and always ready for some fun; if you identify with these traits, you are, we suspect, already thinking about your next party. You’re a party animal, never at home on a weekend evening, unless the party is at your place! Your energy levels peak in the evenings, with the rising volume of music, and we think the phrase “party-hopping” was made for the likes of you!

For the party going pros, dressing up is easier than it is for the rest, because, we are sure you already have a wardrobe in place. The only anxiety they court stems from the fear of repeating an outfit. A party gal will take just a few minutes to get her make up in place, winged eyeliner included! And the party boy is a magician with hair styling tricks. They never fail to look glamorous and stylish as they step out of the house, ready to dance the night away.

Take tips from party hoppers Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Anusha Dandekar, Channing Tatum and Ranveer Singh to create a variety of looks for all the year-end parties lined up.

If you’ve got some of the basics right, it is easy to become a pro at dressing up for parties in a jiffy. For girls, while the classic LBD (little black dress) is fail proof, you can also try different options that are more on trend. A short dress with a flirty hemline, a bold colour, and sequins go a long way in making you the life of the party. For those who want to try something else, pick a classy jumpsuit for a combination of comfort and style. And if your clothes feel too plain, you can always depend on accessories – a shiny clutch, sky high heels and statement jewellery.

For guys, a pair of trousers that are right for your body type is a must. Get a few shirts in luxurious materials like satin and silk, and try out prints – it will be a great change from your basic office wear. For more casual events, make a statement with a funky t-shirt and show off some accessories.

Parties are the one place where you can load on the bling without fear. Take this chance to shine!

You are a party animal if:
· Shine, sequins, glitter and embellishments define your wardrobe.

· “Bling” is an everyday thing for you, because…hey, there’s a party every day to go to!

· You have a ‘regular’ perfume and a ‘party’ perfume.

· You know exactly what to wear to which kind of party, and you turn out to be the best dressed there and some times walk home with the Best Dressed sash and a goodie bag.

· If you don’t have any parties to go to, you just decide to host one yourself!

Chain reaction!

Layered-necklace_creative1_celebs Layered-necklace_prdt_creativewhen it comes to jewellery, we all long for statement pieces to stand out from the crowd. Ever wondered what your dainty onesies can do when layered together?! When it comes to neckpieces, it’s more the merrier this season, if you are looking to make a real fashion statement!

From the front row fashion week regulars, international bloggers and even designers, everyone is layering multiple necklaces. And why not?! When one necklace is not striking enough, two or more will surely add depth to the look. Making inspirational appearances with their layered pieces are our favourite celebrities like Sonam Kapoor, Rihanna, Genelia D’Souza, Kareena Kapoor, Sushmita Sen, Maria Goretti, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, Blake Lively, Paris Hilton, Rihanna, Kate Bosworth, Vanessa Hudgens and Mary Kate Olsen.

Statement necklaces may be a big thing right now but there is nothing more rule-breaking than layering a few regular ones over each other. And layering necklaces is no rocket science. Mix tones, textures, beads with each other to create an interesting, textured look. For instance, pick a funky pendant with a beaded neckpiece or a pearl necklace with something delicate in dull gold.  Jut ensure you don’t pair a longish chain with a bib necklace. That’s sure to kill the look!

Ensure each one that you plan to wear is a little longer or shorter from the other. Doing this will make every neck piece clearly visible, yet you must remember to not pick two necklaces with starkly contrasting lengths.

Bunching up traditional necklaces is really big right now. Take a cue from Sonam Kapoor’s double kundan neck pieces worn together over a plain ensemble. Now you know what to do with your mom’s old necklaces!

Bollywood Fridays – Dhoom 3

movie-poster-creative_dhoom3

one of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year is finally year. Yeah…let me hear you let your breath out and say Dhoom Dhoom, for the threequel to the Dhoom series hits the marquee today. I have enjoyed the first two in the series and watching this one surely is on my weekend agenda. There’s the Aamir Khan factor, yes, but the only thing that’s creating more buzz than Aamir’s grey character in the film is Katrina Kaif‘s smouldering hot wardrobe, courtesy ace stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania. Not that Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra are doing too badly in that department either!  The jackets worn by the former and the coloured glasses by the latter are things we are totally digging. Here’s  how you can get their looks. Use the comments section to tell us if you are planning to watch the action thriller this weekend!

Trendy Thursdays – Studs & Sequins

muted tones are all good for the winter but December makes us crave for bright and shiny pieces, because it’s the party month of the. This year, studs and sequins have been tested on non party pieces like shirts, shift dresses an, jackets along with flat sandals, clutches and bracelets.

B town beauties like Esha Gupta, Priyanka Chopra, Frieda Pinto, Preity Zinta, Kareena Kapoor and Malaika Arora Khan have reigned over the red carpet wearing sequined outfits. That’s the power of sequins! It unfailingly catches attention.

With a little effort, sequins can be easily worn from street to a stellar party! We show you how to work sequins in various ways.

Rule of thumb! Since sequins itself acts as an accessory, it does not require too much jewellery. Too much of sequins will make you look overdressed. A great hairstyle or footwear in neutral colours will work the trend well.

Usually sequined outfits are restricted to eveningwear but you can easily incorporate it in day wear dressing too, as long as you ensure that the rest of the look is sober.

Alternatively, add studded and sequinned accessories like head bands, bracelets, shoes or even a glitzy bag to make a plain outfit suited for a party. This tip is also for those who shy away from embellished outfits.

Muted tones like beige, grey, taupe, etc. will mellow down the glitzy effect of sequins. An easy and laid-back look with a touch of bling will be more day-appropriate. If it’s a sequined dress, layer it under a denim jacket. Similarly if you wear sequined shorts, team them with a buttoned up white shirt and leather boots.

Is bling not your thing? Well then studs must have been invented just for you! Cone, spike or round, studs are made for the rebellious hearted. They are apt to add edge to your look. Trusted by bloggers and fashion editors, celebs like Kanye West, Russell Brooke, Justin Beiber, Amrita Arora, Priyanka Chopra, Rihanna and Kim Kardashian are also loving them.

Studs are the easiest to style! All you need is Punk elements like tartan, distressed denim, leather and more leather! Here’s how you can style it:

Boys! If you plan to wear a stud embellished tee, layer it over a denim shirt and add a pair of slouchy pants. Complete the look with boots to make it biker chic!

For girls, anything from a tartan shirt or a denim jacket will work well with stud embellished outfit. Add a backpack, do your hair in a messy side braid, and you are ready to wear studs to college!

 

A little shimmer and some edge

Less than two week to go before the party of the year hits town, and since the invitations must have already started flooding your inbox, this, we thought, was the perfect time to do a video story on embellishments. The two hottest embellishments of course are studs and sequins. While 2013 almost belonged to the former, the unmistakable glam quotient the latter brings with it is remarkable. But how much is too much? How do you do studs and sequins right? What’s the right occasion to wear them? All these and more is answered in the video below.

Also, as a special festive gesture, we have created one look for the man  with studded accessories. This is largely a women’s trend. But men shouldn’t entirely miss out on the stud factor, pun intended!

Enjoy the video!
